Loosley translated from Hawaiian, "Kahuna Kupuna" means "Big Chief Wise Elder" which is a good name for the only amateur surf contest in the world that is specifically designed for older surfers age 40 and over. This year's contest will be the 19th Annual Kahuna Kupuna and will take place on Saturday, July 21, 2018 from 7 AM until 5 PM at Linda Mar Beach in Pacifica, CA with the post-contest dinner and awards celebratioin taking place at the Pacifica Moose Lodge, 776 Bradford Way, Pacifica from 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM.
This unique event offers separate subdivisions for both men and women all the way up to age 80 and beyond for longboard AND shortboard surfers. Many contestants choose to surf in multiple divisions. As a result, we hand out a lot of trophies over the course of the day. More information about the many different types of sub-divisions can be found in the FAQ section.
In addition to the many kupuna sub-divisions, we offer one more division - the Intergenerational Team Division - to provide an opportunity for younger surfers under 40 to join the over 40 surfers in the contest as part of an Intergenerational Team. Kupuna surfers are encouraged to form Intergenerational teams that include surfers under 40. These teams are comprised of 6 members each and must represent three generations. One generation = 18 years. More information on how to form teams can be found in the FAQ section.
The Kahuna Kupuna is the primary fundraiser for Pacifica's Environmental Family, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization in Pacifica, CA whose mission is to promote the discovery of and caring for the wealth of natural resources in Pacifica. Net proceeds from the contest underwrites PEF's annual operating expenses. PEF is the official sponsor of the Kahuna Kupuna. More information about PEF can be found below.
